2. (3 pts.) iii the setup of SG devices shown in problem (1) above, what is always true about the state 3 vector of the quantons exiting through the positive output of the middle device? Circle all that apply! (a) This state vector is the same as that of the quantons entering the middle device.
@This state vector has collapsed to the +y) eigenvector.
(c) Quantum mechanics leaves us uncertain about this state vector after the middle device has performed its measurement.
(d) This state vector must be an energy eigenvector. Explain your responses (including the ones that you did not circle)! (1 pt. for correct answers, 2 pts.
